Best little car i've owned

I use the car a few times a week, most reliable vehicle ive ever owned & im 60 so prob owned about 15 cars. Solid road holding & quiet. As with any car its important to get your servicing done. Ive had it 7 years & its never once had an issue or had a fault, just normal service requirements & 1 turbo hose. Id have to question those with issues as there are a lot of people that simply run cars to death without getting services done Show details

I love the car but once it opens with the errors it never stops

I couldn’t have said it better I bought the same car and loved then it started the down fall. From oil leak, to battery fail, engine fail don’t know when will it stop. Car was parked for three months so to renew the rego and get road worthy agsin now it’s and endless trips to mechanics and they are not the wiser . For some reason the drivers seat heat dial failed on the highest setting, so driving North Queensland with a hair drier on the back of my head was a challenge ,also the turbo hose just gave up apparently cause it’s old car. Huh as much as I love this car, it emptied my wallet but finally it on the road. Show details

308 HDI wagon 2010

handles really well, fuel economy is so so good. Bought it with 80k on the speedo and now after 5 years has 202,000klms.

We have it servied everydue time and it goes so well.

We love our wagon, even towed a small Jayco van with it for a while.. Ours is the 1.6hdi 6 speed manual. Love French cars, I have now owned 5 different Renaults, 2 Citroens, and 5 Peugeots since 1973, and this 308 would be the best of them all. Show details

Powerful engine, comfortable and nice look interior!

this is the best car i ever had , i bought a $4000 used which is very low price , low km with a powerful fuel saving 2.0 diesel engine + a 6 speed manual. The handling is the best compares to other rivals.
The bad things is this model never touch or buy 1.6 turbo petrol with 4speed automatic gearbox, the old school gearbox can't support turbo power will cause many engine and gearbox problems. , it will be a nigtmare.
to have best experiences, choose the right specification. Show details

Great customer support

Our 2015 Peugeot 308 suffered a premature deterioration of the engine camshaft timing belt. Car has 50,00km, is over 4 years old and out of warranty. Peugeot covered both labour and parts for a sizeable repair job as a goodwill gesture. Great customer support! Much appreciated. Show details

Quality Car with Comfort and Style

The T9 308 is a return to form for Peugeot. Ours is 5 years old and rock solid. It's got every feature under the sun (blindspot monitor, active cruise, speed sign recognition, front and rear sensors/camera and the list goes on). The best seats you will ever find in a small hatch and the genius i-cockpit and small steering wheel. Yes it costs more to service, BUT it only needs to be done once per year and is an exceptionally reliable, comfortable car. You just don't find this sort of quality in the Japanese or Korean makes around the same price. Peugeot has a very exciting future ahead with the quality cars they are now bringing out. Show details

Unreliable car, very poor customer service!

I bought my brand new 308 Allure Premium in 2015. Thats a beautiful car but its not reliable at all! The engine light is on most of the time and Peugeot service center dont have enough knowledge and experience to fix it! Where ever you take your car for service, make sure you dont go to Bayside European Peugeot Service. Not only they dont know how to repair the car, but also they dont have good manner at the front desk! Show details

Dont even think about it

We bought second hand from the first owner. Weve had to fix almost everything on this vehicle. Weve had it serviced regularly. Driven every day for family school runs etc. Great to drive but will cost you a fortune to have serviced and for parts. Look at any other vehicle. Show details

Please do not buy

Like another poster, I have had my 308 for the last 3 years as a fleet car. I have suffered from constant issues very similar to Mooshie. Constant ignition and spark plug problems. Massive oil leakage problems and various other niggles too multiple to list. The engine light remains on constantly, I have to ignore it now or I would never get any work done as I would need to live at the dealership. If it were my money I would have hired a lawyer to get a refund by now. As I said this is a fleet car so I know many people who drive the 308 and all have the same issues so don’t kid yourself and think I just got a Lemon, it’s endemic across the brand.Do not spend your money on this car. Show details

How reliable is a 2013 Petrol 1.6L automatic Peugeot mechanically & electrically.
Is it costly to service & repair?

James
James · 308

Hi there. My 2009 Peugeot 308 normally revs at idle at 800rpm. Immediately I release the brake, the revs increase to 1200 rpm without my touching the accelerator. At those revs its strong enough to drive itself. Then when I start to drive and stop at lights again, the revs drop back to 800 when the brake has been applied and then jumps to 1200 again immediately I release the brake again (and still don't accelerate). I have disconnected all of the Vac pipes, still does the same thing. How can the brake pedal when depressed slow the diesel 2.0 ltr idle back to normal. Any ideas, Peugeot friends ?? Regards James.

I have P0016 error code on the ECU & changed the camshaft position sensor, but no joy with resetting the code, still appears!
The next option is to replace timing change, but is there an manual adjustment before I take this expensive step
